This past Sunday night, TV’s favorite doctor celebrated his 60th birthday party. The Dr. Drew Pinsky’s birthday bash roast took place at STK in Los Angeles. The roast and celebration were the theme of the night, but the event was to benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Dozens of celebrity friends showed up to the event to support Drew’s cause and celebrate his birthday with a roast. Some of the attendees included Joel McHale, Bob Saget, Adam Carolla and Jimmy O. Yang. I spoke to a few of the guest on the red carpet. Check out the interviews below and check out the rest on the Reel Talker Podcast on iTunes.
JIMMY O. YANG:
It’s great for Dr. Drew to use his influence and turn his birthday celebration roast to a prostate cancer benefit. If anything was evident, it’s that Dr. Drew has many friends in Hollywood that support him. Speaking to some of those celebrity guests, it was apparent that they were influenced by him in their personal lives and careers. I kept hearing numerous celebs talk about listening to Drew on Love Line.
Dr. Drew Pinsky has impacted so many people, those that know him and ones that never met him. He’s been that trusted voice on radio and television. My overall impression of him is that he’s very well liked and that was apparent at this event. He’s also a humble and charismatic guy. Keep up with upcoming episodes of Dr. Drew on his podcast (Podcast One network) to hear the roast.
